I haven't been here for some time. My Ac1 was 6.1 last reading and my readings have been good. Today I ate poorly and right now my sugar is 81. It's never been this low. It was 85 a while ago. I'm not sure what's up. I'm going to have a bowl of cereal right now. Any thoughts on why the low reading? Thank you.

is not your body weird at times? There are days I am sure my numbers will be high because of what I ate or the amounts I have eaten and when I check, it shows normal numbers. I just hope I dont get to the point that I expect abnormal eating will produce normal readings.

What's eating poorly? Also, when did you test? I wouldn't eat a bowl of cereal at that level.

I had a ton of carbs yesterday and the day prior. Cookies, cereal and a hamburger. I tested three or four hours later. I've been distracted with other stuff and hadn't checked my sugar for a month. I think I got cocky when my AC1 results were 5.9 and then 6.1. I really need to get on track.

Have you checked to see if your meter is working correctly? I have two of the same meters and randomly check them against each other. Or you could have spiked your blood sugar and it came crashing down.

I have checked it and it's working fine. Maybe it did spike and crashed. It kept going a few points lower each time I checked and it made me a bit nervous. Thanks.

I think mine went low because I've been dancing with too many carbs!

they put me on a 289 carb a day and i figured out that the closest i get to that the betr my sugars are but im also on a 2200 calorie diet and i think yesterday the closest i came was 1100 so im going to try an 1800 wen i see the dietian on the 12th. does that make sense?
